Systematic analysis of human telomeric dysfunction using inducible telosome/shelterin CRISPR/Cas9 knockout cells

CRISPR/Cas9 technology enables efficient loss-of-function analysis of human genes using somatic cells. Studies of essential genes, however, require conditional knockout (KO) cells. Here, we describe the generation of inducible CRISPR KO human cell lines for the subunits of the telosome/shelterin complex, TRF1, TRF2, RAP1, TIN2, TPP1 and POT1, which directly interact with...

Human telomeric proteins occupy selective interstitial sites

Human telomeres are bound and protected by protein complexes assembled around the six core telomeric proteins RAP1, TRF1, TRF2, TIN2, TPP1, and POT1. The function of these proteins on telomeres has been studied extensively. Recently, increasing evidence has suggested possible roles for these proteins outside of telomeres. However, the non-canonical (extra-telomeric) function of...

Gene-gene interaction between IL-13 and IL-13Rα1 is associated with total IgE in Korean children with atopic asthma

Interleukin (IL)-13, which is essential for IgE synthesis, mediates its effects by binding with a receptor composed of IL-4Rα and IL-13Rα1. We investigated the effects of IL-13 and IL-13Rα1 polymorphisms in Korean children with asthma, and whether these have been associated with IgE production. We enrolled 358 atopic asthmatic, 111 non-atopic asthmatic, and 146 non-atopic healthy...
